OPI Muppets – RAINBOW CONNECTION
There is a lot of wow in this Muppets Collection. This is one of the ones that immediately caught my eye when the first promo bottles came out waaay back when. But that was before DLHB – before I got Deborah Lippmann’s Happy Birthday for my birthday J
Rainbow Connection is a polish addict’s crack in a bottle. It’s got glitter of all shapes and sizes and all colours and the bottle is absolutely RAMMED. There are silver pieces, orange, pink, blue, yellow, green – it really is a rainbow of glittertasticness J
I’m intrigued to swatch this next to Happy Birthday to see how close or different they are. This one feels like it has more “sweetie shop” colours in it, but that could be my imagination.
I personally wouldn’t want to wear this alone, although I have to say, I was surprised just how much coverage 2 coats generated. I love how it looks over the skittles, and how it looks different over each one, as if different pieces of the glitter stand out and clash with the different base colours. Surprisingly, the teal one is a major winner for me.
You might be able to see on the thumb a mahoooosive drag mark. This is another polish that is best dabbed rather than spread. I found that blobbing also really allowed me to get good even coverage of the glitter, rather than just the teeny tiny pieces at the bottom and the big ones at the tip!
So this is a total love for me, and I actually love it much more than I thought I would. I was really worried I would feel it was superfluous next to HB, but I am loving owning both.
I’ll do some comparison swatches soon. In the meantime, enjoy J
Top Tip – if you’re ever unsure what a nail colour looks like, go to Google images, which will give you plenty of contrasts and compares.
